At Pocket Park 1, you'll find a very laid-back vibe, making it a perfect place to have a picnic or BBQ with family or friends. So grab your cooler and beach chairs and head to Pocket Park 1 to soak up the natural beauty of one of Galveston’s most popular West End beaches.
At Pocket Park 1, you can drive your vehicle right onto the sand, so your cooler and other belongings are never more than a few steps away from your beach towel!
Just a few miles past Galveston’s Seawall, the West End is a great spot for relaxing on the sand or playing in the water. Put your lounge chair right at the water's edge and savor the feeling of the waves lapping at your feet, while you enjoy a cold drink (no glass please, but cans are okay). Your furry family members are welcome too, but they must be on a leash.
One of the reasons why so many people choose Pocket Park 1 is that you can drive right onto the sand and park near the ocean. For those looking for a less crowded place to soak up the sun, head past the vehicle barricades.
Portable restrooms are available from mid-March through Labor Day.
